i Hamburger Helper is a packaged food product branded by General Mills and sold under the Betty Crocker brand. Hamburger Helper consists of boxed pasta bundled with packets of powdered sauce and seasonings.

Cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of another culture. Cultural appropriation is seen by some as controversial, notably when elements of a minority culture are used by members of the cultural majority; this is seen as wrongfully oppressing the minority culture or stripping it of its group identity and intellectual property right.
